Global Extended Family

Global Extended Family are part of our church body who have responded in obedience to a call to serve the unreached. They live and work in a particular nation building relationships, rooting themselves in the culture, and providing various forms of ministry, all the while meeting a physical, emotional or educational need over time. With a heart to change their whole life for Christ, they are an extension of the work and influence of our church.

We take the responsibility of walking with our Extended Family very seriously. We are called to support, encourage, restore, and celebrate what God is doing in and through them overseas as they share the gospel and make disciples in places few Americans have seen.

Jessie Rybaczyk Serving in Costa Rica

Jessie Rybaczyk Serving in Costa Rica

Jessie will be serving as a long-term missionary with Students International (SI) in Desamparados, Costa Rica. She will join the Sports and Recreation Ministry Site to provide more fitness programs, team sports outlets and mentorship for students of all ages within the smaller communities of Desamparados. The main objective of the program is to show Christ’s love through various avenues, to disciple and to empower children to reach their God-given potentials.

The Sports and Recreation Ministry Site travels to various schools, community centers or neighborhoods to serve the people of Desamparados and share Jesus’ love with them. Ultimately, the hope is that Jessie will run a sports ministry specifically for teen girls, as there currently is not an outlet for these young women.

Students International is an organization that strives to bring students and the poor together cross-culturally to encounter God, share the good news, disciple and serve others in occupational ministries.

Jessie would love for you to be a part of her journey by following posts, photos and prayer requests on her Facebook page.

The Griffiths Serving in West Africa

The Griffiths Serving in West Africa

The Griffiths are serving with New Tribes Mission to help people connect to God and to each other in their neighborhood in West Africa.

They began learning the trade language, and after attaining proficiency, moved on to learn the most widely used local language. This seemed to break down the wall of noise that had been separating them from diving in deeper with the people around them—suddenly they understood people walking by on the street and neighbors yelling out their windows.

Their next step is to move out to a remote village and start learning a third ethnic group language, which will bring them into the next layer of culture and closer to the heart of the people with the purpose to translate and teach the Word of God.
